get to know me meme | [1/5] character pairings

Jim: “Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing I ever had to do, which was just to wait. Don’t get me wrong—I flirted with her. Pam, I can now admit in front of friends and family that I do know how to make a photocopy. I didn’t need your help that many times. And do you remember how long it took you to teach me to drive stick?”

Pam: “Like a year.”

Jim: “I’ve been driving stick since high school. For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.”


JK: This was actually the first time, Jenna, that we had to get into sort of a fight. Like our two characters actually get mad at each other. And I remember you were so upset about it.
JF: I really was.

JF: I remember after we shot this, because this was our first little tiff, I came up to you afterwards and said, “Um, John? Will you please give me a hug so I know that you, as John Krasinski, are not mad at me today?” And he said, “Yes.”
JK: I said, “Sure.”
JF: And then we made up.
JK: Made out?
JF: Made up!
JK: Made up! Right, right, right…
JF: That’s a different episode, John.
